Digital Commencement Celebration

We are eager to celebrate the students who have worked hard to earn their degree! Unfortunately, the University will not be hosting an in-person Commencement ceremony in December 2020 due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases and government limits on in-person gatherings. 

We realize that this is disappointing news, but the safety of our students, employees and guests must remain our top priority. Please keep reading for several important updates regarding your graduation!

We are planning virtual celebrations to recognize our Eastern graduates! Students should check their University email and this website for updates.

We also invite students graduating in December 2020 to join us for a future in-person Commencement ceremony when it is safe to have one. Check this website for future updates.

Students who have not yet applied to graduate should access their My.Emich account, choose the “Student” tab, click “Student Records”, and then click “Apply to Graduate”.

If you have questions about the status of your application to graduate, please contact the University Registrar by emailing [email protected].

For any other questions regarding Commencement, please email William Pollard, at [email protected] or call 734.487.4600.
